What Makes Us Unique…

YMCA’s Licensed Home Child Care Program is child care in a “family style” setting with flexible hours, family groupings and the opportunity for siblings to be in child care together. The caregiver develops a well-rounded program for the children with both indoor and outdoor activities. YMCA contracts with caregivers who provide child care for children from infancy to 12 years of age, with a maximum of six child care children (no more than two children under two years of age).

As a Small Business… What You Need to Know…

At the YMCA, we believe children and families are central to everything we do. We provide home child care and early learning opportunities in the community by partnering with self-employed, independently contracted caregivers.
